What a debut for new Riverdale Heights Music Teacher, Mr. Connell! Students at Riverdale Heights performed his first winter program for PV on December 8, 2016.
The 6th Grade kicked off the concert with a beautiful rendition of “Snowflake Carol.” The Kindergarten entertained as they sang “I Want to be an Elf.” The 5th Grade and 4th Grade both performed on their recorders. The 2nd Grade kicked up the tempo with “Mittens and Gloves.” We all know “My Favorite Time of Year,” thanks to the 1st Graders, and the 3rd Grade sang “Silent Night” in Japanese. Harmonics, the 4th and 5th Grade choir, sang challenging songs, even one without accompaniment! The 6th Grade Band brought it home with a jazzy version of “Jingle Bells” called “Jingle Jumble.” The concert ended with an all-school and audience sing of “Deck the Halls.”
Thank you to Mr. Connell, band director Mrs. Isaacson and her student teacher Ms. Thompson!
